INTRODUCTION:

The theoretical buckling load for a pinned-ended strut is one-quarter of the theoretical buckline load of a fixed-ended strut and four times the theoretical buckling load for a strut fixed at one end and free at the other end.

 

EFFECTIVE LENGTH OF VARIOUS TYPES OF STRUTS:

Table 1 gives the effective lengths of struts (L0), which have actual lengths of L, for different
boundary conditions, where BS449 allows for elastic relaxation at the ends of the strut.
